Chaka Khan & Incognito @ Hoochie Coochie May 17.

(Photo courtesy of Hoochie on F/b).
Chaka was an absolute top class blast - the place was packed out, and a wide age range too.  All very exciting.  We stood away from the front, by one of the pillars - so had somewhere for our glasses and stuff.  Free Bolly and a bottle of wine for me - consequently my head was a bit sore on Sunday!  I lost the top of my hearing too - and my knees were knacked from all the mad dancing.  All worth it - an unforgettable evening - she did all the hits, one after the other - and Incognito played along, all the tight, funky grooves, with plenty of brass and keyboard riffing.  Hoochie attracts such a good and friendly crowd - I can't wait for the next gig there.  And I like it that the DJ plays vinyl, and great classic dance tracks for a bit of a boogie - knees permitting!

Wish I could - but I'll be in Glasgow, recovering from front row seats and Prince!
